Whoopi Goldberg has revealed the reason why she felt it was time to bring Sister Act 3 to screens.
The last time the world got to see the actress as Deloris Wilson (aka Sister Mary Clarence) was 27 years ago in Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit.
When asked about her decision to add another film to the franchise, Whoopi stated on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert: ‘Listen, do you know how many other sequels have been done.
‘People are like in their 90s and they’re doing sequels… I look young now. I thought, “Well, if everybody else is doing it”.’
As Stephen laughed along, Whoopi added: ‘Everyone seems to be able to do it and I thought those nuns deserve to have another go around and have some fun. We’re writing a script.’
The pair went on to discuss possible names for the third film as the 65-year-old actress joked: ‘Oh My God It Still Fits… Blacker in the Habit.’
Stephen added: ‘Ooo, Black in the Habit. I like that.’
Earlier this year, she told The Late Late Show with James Corden that she’s been ‘diligently’ working on trying to ‘get the gang back together’ for a Sister Act 3.
This appears to suggest that the Oscar-winner is trying to bring back at least some of the original cast.
There is no release date just yet but we do know the film will debut on Disney Plus.
